Description Are you positive and creative? Could you help teach essential life skills to young people with learning disabilities? No experience needed, we provide full training.

You'll provide support for young people 18 - 25 years old who have a range of learning disabilities including autism. You will be there to help teach life skills such as crossing roads, awareness of money, shopping and other day to day tasks. Negotiable hours depending on experience, roughly around 25 hours over 7 days if needed but there is the possibility of more hours.

Some things you need to know:

You'll be working in St.Helens and some travel further afield may be required. Sometimes you may be required to work weekends as well as possible overnights.
You must be able to drive and have your own transport, as you will be supporting young people from their homes.
Some people require help with personal care or medication. When anxious, they can display challenging behaviour and require emotional reassurance and support. We'll provide full training and day-to-day support in all aspects of your job, including these.
